SAOPAULO (Reuters) – Former Brazilian President Michel Temer on Thursday surrendered himself to the country’s federal police, marking the second time he will be jailed on allegations that he participated in a vast corruption scheme for decades.

Temer, a moderate who was president until the end of 2018, was first jailed in March but released days after. His lawyers have already filed an appeal against the latest arrest order.
